Coffee from the Champion Australian Roaster
Our coffee was awarded the Champion Australian Roaster title in 2018 and 2019 by the Australian International Coffee Awards.
We craft coffee that defines flavour. Because that’s what coffee is about – full-bodied flavour that keeps you coming back for more.
Coffee creation is science and art. Art is the gift of creativity we use to design the ideal roast profile for each blend and origin. It is intangible knowledge honed from years of practice that allows us to define an outstanding roast.
Science is the measuring and discovery of the finely woven tapestry that exists in the art to make it reproducible. The consistency of these profiles through our roasting is how we deliver you perfect coffee, every cup.
The story behind the iconic northern beaches coffee roaster
In 1994, owner Paul Jackson didn’t like coffee. It tasted bitter. Burnt. Dirty. Over–extracted. So he set himself a challenge to create a coffee he loved. He started a flavour crusade. Supported by an extraordinary team, Paul’s crusade became our obsession.
We separated coffee into its key elements–then reconstructed each component. From coffee bean to water, grinder and the machine, barista training, and milk treatment – all the way through to the finished cup.
In 1999 we shared this obsession with a few other flavour crusaders and created the Danes Specialty Coffee Institute in Brookvale NSW. A select SCA-accredited campus, we set the global benchmark for barista training and education in Australia.
We are grounded by our customers’ needs. You’re our focus.
That’s why our obsession is about flavour, not form. It’s about the end result, not the process.
Today we’re driven by the same passion that ignited Paul over 20 years ago.
Our obsession continues to create consistently flavoursome coffee that keeps you coming back for more.
